Technical Summary
 
   Mobile IPv4 uses the Home Agent (HA) to anchor sessions of a
   roaming Mobile Node (MN).  This draft proposes a messaging mechanism
   for dynamic home agent assignment and HA redirection.  The goal is to
   provide a mechanism to assign an optimal HA for a Mobile IP session
   while allowing any suitable method for HA selection.
